Airstream 345 alignment needed

My 345 now needs an alignment because there are new bells on the crank arms. Anyone have someone here in Phoenix that can do this?

Most any truck shop can do.
Look near Interstate for a truck stop, or area where large trucks are sold.

You could call some shops that service school bus brakes and springs, tires. Bread trucks and such.

Give a call to Paul Buckman @ Arizona Auto Service. If anyone would know the best place, it'd be him. They've taken great care of us for years when we go south. Tell him hello.....623.934.2963

Hi Mike,
Thank you for the info. He couldn't really help. The person he referred me to could not fit anything over 11 feet tall in to is bay. I also do not know what type of axle it has.

Setting toe is so so so easy to do............anyone can do it

even at home......


really....

have a partner hold the end of a tape measure across the rear ot the tire, holding the tape end on the tire tread. U pick a spot on your tire rear (same elevation) remember the length. Do the same in front, each guy repeating exactly for their same tread "location" but on front of tire, must be same elevation as rear check. Difference is your toe in or out. Adjust tie rod links both sides same amount for adjust. Repeat process to check your work. I can do it faster than the time it takes to drive somewhere to get it done........If the steering wheel winds up a little off position from center just unbolt it and put it back straight. all the shops have is a device to replace the extra person and tape measure and some brain power come to think of it,,,,,,,,
